GOD HAS THIS!
We face situations of life and we wonder where God is in it.
There are times when we need to be still and rest in the shadow of his plan. Read what the Bible says about God being our refuge and strength. He gives us courage to face things daily and hope.
Psalm 91 New International Version (NIV)
1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
3 Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”
Resting in God's plan and moving forward into today! Amazing love is what I wrote about yesterday and his guidance that continues daily. One action can go a million miles in our thoughts without us leaving a chair. Reading and planting hope daily is so important.
I know that God rescued me from the enemy of my soul. That he planted hope and new beginnings in my life. Just when I thought things were too hard, God heard the cry of my heart and rescued me. Like a ship on an ocean and taking me to a place of safety. I love how I can look back and see the grace of God in my life. All the time, God was saying "BE STILL and LISTEN". We must stop blaming ourselves about things in life and trust God. Taking ownership of some wrong choices and allow new ways to guide our lives. Each of us are human and make mistakes.
When you least expect it, God answers with hope. Many people who pray for you, may never tell you. The unknown prayers goes a long way. I pray daily for the readers of my blog and I believe God has brought you to this website for purpose. Be encouraged today and reach for the stars. Believe big and know that in the silence of God, he is still working in your life. Purpose this a good day!
Another example is a child, we grow and learn at different rates. Never compare yourself to anyone else because you don't know their past and the things they have gone through. It looks easy on the outside but inside is a different story. Surrounding your will to God's plan is important each day of life. Don't be hard on yourself and live in today!
